As the end of the first semester neared, the Companion Math classes completed a booklet focusing on students’ interest in a particular career field. The booklet consisted of a 2-page paper addressing areas such as, job description, employment facts, educational requirements, job outlook, earnings, and what generally happens in a day in the life of the career chosen. Students also included with the paper a cover page and work cited page. In addition, the booklet consisted of problems written by and solved by the students as it relates to their chosen career, various types of graphs, research pertaining to money markets as they begin to learn how to make money work for them, and multiple representations of data derived from situations that may occur in the their chosen career. Each component of the booklet was driven by various standards learned during the semester. The development of the booklet was both enjoyable and challenging to the students.
Mr. Collum was happy about Ole Miss winning the Egg Bowl. He brought all his neckties to school to put in his closet cabinet. One necktie was a beautiful Ole Miss tie. Mr. Collum took us to the restroom, but he did not put the Ole Miss necktie in the closet. We meet Mr. Jason walking down the hallway while we ere going to the restroom. When we got back to the classroom the necktie was gone. Who could have taken Mr. Collum’s Ole Miss tie?

The program enables teams of students to invest a hypothetical $100,000 in the stock market over a 15-week period. Winners are determined on the percentage return above or below S&P 500 growth. The Pontotoc Middle School team outperformed the S&P by 7.7% and grew their portfolio to $111,207 over the 15-week session.
